I have watched the movie based on the novel of the same name by the John Green, and I prefer reading the book than watching the movie as I found the movie is a little boring and it didn’t touched my heart. The novel describes the feelings of the characters in more detail and make I feel emotions about life. I can’t stop flipping and reading the novel as the storyline is interesting and it has an irresistible attraction to me. If you ask me to select the film or the novel alternatively, I probably choose the novel!

The Fault In Our Stars is an amazing book that tells life, death and separation. You will feel for the characters, laugh with them, and sob for them. It is the first book that make me cry for the characters. I highly recommend this book to all of my friends and classmates and I think they would also enjoy reading
